December XIIth, MMXIV
Hon. Gordon Dirks, B. Ed., M. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Calgary-Elbow
It seems that Mrs. Laureen Harper would make a very good Conservative candidate in Alberta (both as a nominee, & candidate.) The added bonus is that she'd win any southern riding the party chose her to run in, either a newly created riding, or in a riding where an MP is already stepping down. This actually makes sense for political science students to watch out IV as Steve Harper, PC, MP would just adore having his wife sit on Her Majesty's Government benches with him.
My arguments for include:
I. look at what a great New Democratic power couple the late Jack Layton & Olivia Chow were. Both city councilors in Toronto & both MPs. They rose together to win the office of Leader & Spouse of Her Majesty's Loyal Official Opposition, totally changing the Tory/Grit only dynamic of the politics of The Dominion Of Canada.
II. Laureen & Steve's kids Ben & Rachel would love the idea as they are both grown up anyway. Plus, their family unit would still be together and it wouldn't cost the taxpayers any extra money in terms of housing as Laureen & Steve already cohabitate at XXIV (24) Sussex Drive.
III. Furthermore (as indicated above), the PM would love to have his gorgeous & dynamic bride sit next to him when a cabinet minister was away b/c he could talk to her as he knows he can implicity trust her. Especially since she is even more of a conservative partisan than he is (he'd be the first to admit it.)
IV. Also, Laureen could donate 100% of her salary while in office & any pension benefits to the Ottawa & Calgary Humane Society, her favorite charity of choice. This is an idea my feline son, The Right Hissable James Redwing Cat Koopmans, Conpurravative, Edmonton-Centre agrees with highly.
Yes Candidate Harper, Laureen Harper Would Be Aces As An MP,
